Futurama Nerdgasm Central (episodes, lines, new DVDs)

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

And according to this, we'll be seeing more of Seymour the Dog-- oh, when will the tears end?

Anyone else as unsurprised as I to read this quote from Massimo's link?
But [Groening] also still draws Life In Hell, the weekly comic strip he's been doing for almost thirty years (he told reporters that he "puts it off for as long as possible," doing the strip on Friday afternoons -- it's due at 5:30 PM on Fridays).


It sure reads like he wrote it minutes before deadline... if you compared Life In Hell to a TV show, it jumped the shark about 15 years ago.

The one episode I always think of is the one with Bea Arthur - she had this great line about being 'a fembot trapped in a man-puter's world' that was one of the funnier things I ever heard in my life.

Okay, granted - it doesn't look so funny on paper. But coming from Bea Arthur? Pure hilarity!

Yep, that's "Amazon Women in the Mood" again.

"Did you explain how the women's good fundamentals make up for their inability to dunk??"

That was a great episode, with a lot of funny lines made funnier by good visual comedy.

But of course...


Bender: You're no Femputer, you're a Fembot!
Fembot: It's true. I disguised myself as a Femputer so I could rule the Amazonians.
Bender: But why?
Fembot: Why? Why? I came here from a faraway planet. A planet ruled by a chauvinistic Manputer that was really a Manbot. Have you any idea how it feels to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?
Bender: What?

Its friday, this needs to be brought back.

Calculon: Madam, I am one impressed celebrity.
Coilette/Bender: Oh, I bet you say that to all the five-Olympic-gold-medal-winning fem-bots.
Calculon: From this day forth, l shall do so whenever possible.
Coilette/Bender: Golly! What?

Calculon: Coilette, this may be presumptuous...
Coilette/Bender: That's my favorite kind of this.

So instead of Caturday, we get Fryday?
I like it.


Leela: Oh, God, not Zapp Brannigan.
Dr. Zoidberg: You know Zapp Brannigan?
Leela: Let's just say we've crossed paths.
Bender: Was that before or after you slept with him?

Worm Mayor: You've damaged your brain, Universe, but no more than a week of binge drinking or five minutes on a cell phone.
Fry-Droid: I was just working my way towards the medulla oblongata, control center of the heart and lungs. And if I kill myself, you die with me.
Worm Guard #2: Wait a minute, man!
Fry-Droid: I hope Satan has a nice colon, 'cause that's where you're gonna be living!
Worm Mayor: Stop! We'll leave. But one day you'll be eating a fast-food burger and boom! You'll be crawling with us again. Ever wonder what makes special sauce so special? Yo!
